Google Cloud Partner of the Year
A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

Jellyfish has been selected by Google to facilitate the delivery of this four-day Anthos course. Were a Google Cloud Partner, so you'll be able to benefit from the years of industry experience our trainers have.

Through presentations and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy using Kubernetes Engine (GKE), GKE Connect, Istio service mesh and Anthos Config Management capabilities that enable operators to work with modern applications even when split among multiple clusters hosted by multiple providers, or on-premises.

This is a continuation of Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine and assumes hands-on experience with the technologies covered in that course.

This Architecting Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure with Anthos course is available as a private training session, which can be delivered virtually or at a location of your choice.

Course overview
Who should attend:
This course is intended for the following participants:
  • Technical employees using Google Cloud, including customer companies, partners and system integrators: deployment engineers, cloud architects, cloud administrators, system engineers, and SysOps / DevOps engineers.
  • Individuals using Google Cloud to create, integrate, or modernize solutions using secure, scalable microservices architectures in hybrid environments.
Walk away with the ability to:
  • Deploy Istio service mesh control-plane and proxies using the Helm Kubernetes package manager or using the Istio on GKE add-on
  • Centrally observe, discover, and monitor your microservices-based applications across clusters using Istio service mesh adapters, including Prometheus, Grafana, or Kiali, or Stackdriver
  • Define and manage multi-cluster services with ingress, using open-source Istio via shared and multi-control plane topologies
  • Connect and manage on-premises clusters, and workloads using GKE On-Prem
  • Enable consistent policy enforcement across multi-cluster environments using a configuration-as-code approach and your secure Git repository
To get the most of out of this course, you should have:
  • Completed Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience
  • Completed Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine or have equivalent experience
